I need some help getting a scanned image into an OpenOffice document without 
the black speckled background. This is what I did:

1. Used XSANE 0.97 to scan the signature form my HP G95 printer/scanner.
2. Saved as tiff file.
3. Opened the tiff file in The Gimp 2.2
4. Cut the signature out of the scanned image and pasted it into a new Gimp 
document (so it would not be full page but just a small block).
5. Saved the document as a jpg
6. Inserted the jpg into my OpenOffice 2.0 document.
7. Printed the page with the signature on the G95 and the signature has black 
speckles around it.

I tried setting the background to white in the saved signature file (step 5) 
but I still get the black speckles. They do not show up on the screen. 

I think I need a transparent background in the signature file, but I do not 
know how to make it transparent.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.
